Lim, 56, left for London on Tuesday for an assignment and took a flight back yesterday. He leaves a wife, Tan Hong See and a son.
His body had been sent to the Serdang Hospital for a post-mortem.
Lim started his career in journalism as a reporter with The Malay Mail in the 1970s and later joined the New Straits Times (NST) before being appointed as a sub-editor at CompuTimes, a twice-weekly information technology pullout of the NST, before eventually becoming its general manager.
He joined Bernama as a sub-editor at the Economic News Service after retiring from CompuTimes six years ago.
Lim was also a council member of the Selangor Chess Association.
Sifu knew Lim Chong way back in the 80s when he was staying in Bungsar and used to meet up with him for chess gossip as Sifu was staying nearby in Federal Hill then, a nice soft spoken fellow and chess media have lost a true companion. Farewell Lim we will remember you.
